New to the outdoors? New to Canada? do you want to go camping? do you want to enjoy the outdoors in safety? This is your course!
This course is aimed at people that have never camped before or who want a refresher before heading out. Doing it right the first time can make you a life long outdoors person, doing it wrong will make you never want to do it again, and no one wants that, the outdoors has so much to offer us for body, mind and soul.
If we treat the wilderness with respect and and follow a few simple rules we can have years of trouble free camping.
